Amazing Labs Today!
« on: October 12, 2010, 12:10:40 AM »
Hi guys I started Atripla august 25 and got my 1st set of labs back today. I'm really thrilled with them. My viral load dropped from about 29000 to now just 166! So amazing! I've been going through  a rough time lately so getting these results really made me happy. Atripla is sure great. Next stop: hopefully undetectable. Best  wishes everyone.

Well, congrats.  Once again Atripla does its magic.  Looks as though this week has been a busy one --as far as good news-- for several members.

Thanks guys its very encouraging to get such good news. The first couple weeks on Atripla were indeed "trippy" but Im sure that was it working its magic poundin my viral load into submission lol.
I know I still got a little ways to go, but Im really happy about this. The pesky sore throats and sickness I used to get have totally gone too, I feel pretty great!
